Recap by phillip woo

Hang's Decision quickened nicely one off the fence to win going away 160m out following a rails run in midfield with a return to Sha Tin after some solid Valley form. Metallic Star pressed forward from a wide gate to park outside the leader Ricco Ricco 1,000m out, advanced to the front 400m out and kept on gamely to hold second. Triumphant Light finished reasonably well when only gaining a clear run 150m out near the inside after a one-off run travelling behind midfield to wear down Snow Slider for a placing. Snow Slider handed up the lead to enjoy the box-seat run, peeled four deep upon straightening and was only good enough for fourth with every chance. Able Deed travelled three deep with cover behind midfield, swung the final bend with three wider out and kept grinding away without looking a threat. Formula Galore made progress late with one wider out after travelling fourth from the rear. Danewin Express was short of room three deep from the 300m to 200m after making his run second from the rear after a sluggish break and made a mild bid soon after. Favourite Inventor was strung up in traffic six deep until the 250m after a one-out, one-back run and kept on evenly thereafter. Unbeatable Guts weakened after a ground-covering run near the speed.

Racing Incident Report

Race Six: (570)-THE EQUESTRIAN FUN HANDICAP - Class 4 - 1400Metres

On arrival at the Start, it was noted that INVENTION MASTER had shifted its left front plate.

INVENTION MASTER was examined by the Veterinary Officer who advised that the horse had punctured the sole of its foot and accordingly was not suitable to race.

Acting on this advice, INVENTION MASTER was withdrawn by order of the Stewards.

Before being allowed to race again, INVENTION MASTER will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

FORMULA GALORE, which proved difficult to load, will be required to perform satisfactorily in a stalls test before being permitted to race again.

DANEWIN EXPRESS began only fairly.

Shortly after the start, UNBEATABLE GUTS and RICCO RICCO bumped heavily, resulting in both horses becoming unbalanced.

From the outside barrier, GLACIER BLUE was shifted across behind runners shortly after the start.

In the early stages, FORMULA GALORE got its head up on a number of occasions when being steadied to obtain cover behind the field from a wide barrier.

Passing the 1000 Metres, DANEWIN EXPRESS got its head up when proving difficult to settle and awkwardly placed close to the heels of TRIUMPHANT LIGHT.

Passing the 300 Metres, DANEWIN EXPRESS was steadied when crowded for room between SPEEDY ACHIEVER which shifted out and TRIUMPHANT LIGHT (D Whyte) which, after being held up for clear running, shifted to the inside of SNOW SLIDER to obtain clear running.

D Whyte was severely reprimanded and told that whilst SPEEDY ACHIEVER had only shifted out marginally prior to him committing TRIUMPHANT LIGHT to the inside of SNOW SLIDER, he must ensure that he is properly clear of other runners when shifting ground.

TRIUMPHANT LIGHT was unable to obtain clear running from passing the 400 Metres until near the 250 Metres.

Throughout the race, UNBEATABLE GUTS and GLACIER BLUE travelled wide and without cover.

After the race, T H So (UNBEATABLE GUTS) reported that his saddle shifted back in the early stages, placing him at a disadvantage.

When questioned regarding performance of INVENTOR, Z Purton stated that after having to ride his mount along to obtain a forward position, he was able to obtain a good position just behind the speed.

He said rounding the Home Turn and in the early part of the Straight he was held up for clear running behind UNBEATABLE GUTS and it was not until near the 300 Metres that he was able to commence to fully test INVENTOR.

He said after this the horse did not quicken and was disappointing in its failure to finish off the race.

He added whilst INVENTOR did have difficulty obtaining clear running in the early part of the Straight and consequently lost momentum at a crucial stage of the race, he was of the belief that having to ride INVENTOR along in the early part of the race may have impacted on the horse's ability to finish off the race.

He said accordingly, he informed the connections that he believed that INVENTOR may be better suited to being ridden more conservatively in the early part of the race than it was today.

A veterinary inspection of INVENTOR immediately following the race did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious.

After the race, an endoscopic examination was conducted on HAR HAR CHARMING at the request of Trainer T P Yung.

The Veterinary Surgeon said this examination showed a substantial amount of mucopus in the horse's trachea.

A veterinary inspection of GLACIER BLUE immediately following the race revealed the horse to be lame in its left front leg.

Before being allowed to race again, GLACIER BLUE will be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

INVENTOR, HANG'S DECISION and METALLIC STAR were sent for sampling.
